Open call: OpenART 2019 (Sweden)

ILMOITTAJA: OPENART
5.4.2018

OpenART is a public art biennial and takes place in Örebro, Sweden. During twelve summer weeks contemporary art from all over the world is showcased in the public space. It is a unique event that turns the city upside down with unconventional art, encouraging bold ideas and promoting unusual expressions.

The organisers are now searching for artists with different backgrounds, art mediums and expressions to fill our city with artworks. OpenART invites a broad and curious audience to experience the art regardless if they are acquainted with art or not.

The organisers search for a diversity of artworks that can transform the city with different conformations and concepts. Artists can submit with an already existing artwork or a new idea.

OpenART is an exhibition that takes place in the city centre and the art will be placed outdoors available for public interaction day and night during the exhibition period. We see possibilities for a wide range of art mediums and techniques but are particulary looking for artworks for the open space and in particular new ideas on what public art can be.

Invited artists will receive an artist fee of 1000 EUR and transport, travel and accommodation support.

Deadline: 15 May 2018

Who can apply?
OpenART is open to all professional artists.

What kind of artworks are you looking for?
OpenART is an exhibition that takes place in the city centre and the art will be placed outdoors available for public interaction day and night during the exhibition period. We see possibilities for a wide range of art mediums and techniques but are particulary looking for artworks for the open space and in particular new ideas on what public art can be.

Something that is also good to keep in mind is that OpenART targets an audience which aren’t usually in contact with art and therefore have another curiosity and level of respect towards it. This requires the art to be made out of durable materials, to be able to withstand wind and rain. Artists can apply with an already existing artwork or a new idea. You can add reference pictures to your application in the system.
